Buy Beretta 950 Online Since 1952, Beretta has created and manufactured the semi-automatic 950 pistol. It continues a long tradition of self-defense tiny and portable pocket handguns produced by Beretta. It was designed to be an incredibly basic and dependable pocket handgun.
Simple blowback pistol with a single action trigger and a tip-up barrel is the Beretta 950. The slide and barrel are constructed of carbon steel, and the frame is made of an aluminum alloy.
Early models (*950* and *950B* Pre-1968) lack a safety lever in favor of a safe hammer-down carry provided by an inertial firing pin (the half cock notch is not for carry and could cause the gun to fire if dropped on the hammer). An exterior safety lever is included with later models (*950BS* Post-1968).
